They say the best things come in small packages and Broughshane, which has just been crowned Village of the Year by Channel 4, is no exception.
'The Good Life' and 'To The Manor Born' actress Penelope Keith has been touring the UK in a televised search for the loveliest villages our green and pleasant land has to offer.
The residents and dedicated, hard-working village improvement volunteers are delighted and proud of this honour to be voted, 'UK Village of the Year'.
The prize is £10,000 will be to spent on a community project, which Broughshane's residents intend to use promoting tourism in their village.
Lexie Scott, chairman of Broughshane's community association, entered the village into the competition said he was "delighted" by its victory, describing it as "a very fitting tribute to the effort so many volunteers had put into the life of the village".
